The Fall Conference provides time for reflection on the last century of community foundation leadership through a plenary discussion with trailblazers at the forefront of the community foundation movement. From their historical perspective of the unique qualifications of community foundations to their perceptions of the current challenges facing this sector, we will pay homage to the foundation that has been laid for this field.
Be prepared to engage in thought provoking conversations on trends, innovations and new approaches to community leadership, discuss complex local and regional issues facing the communities we serve, and see results of the Community Foundation Global Online Atlas research – the first comprehensive atlas of the international community foundation movement.
Be sure to also focus time on this first day to enhance your individual, professional excellence with breakout sessions specific to your function in the foundation. Explore sessions such as community foundation investment research, the Washington Update, National Standards, Giving Tuesdays, and a series on community-based issues such as unaccompanied minors and human trafficking.
